Let's imagine you're spending a few days on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. You've crossed the Biloxi Bay Bridge from Ocean Springs into Biloxi. You've had enough of the beach, and you're not interested in the casinos. You have a morning to just explore with no particular schedule. Here's what Steve and I did. We believe you'd enjoy a similar morning.
SEE WHAT'S NEW
Step 1: Park in the area in front of Greenhouse Biloxi and go inside for a coffee and a biscuit to start the day. It's painted pink, so it's hard to miss.
Step 2: Admire the public art beginning to appear and stroll up and down nearby Howard Avenue which has been recently revitalized.
SEE SOME OF THE PAST
Step 3: Pop into the Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras Museum and admire the many intricate costumes that have been proudly worn in past years.
Step 4: Step back in time by walking the Rue Magnolia, gazing at the soaring live oak trees in the courtyard of Mary Mahoney's, and browsing in a few shops.
LEARN ABOUT THE AREA AND THINK ABOUT SEAFOOD
Step 5: Get back in the car and drive a few miles to the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum. Spend an hour or so learning about the important history that makes Biloxi and its surrounding area so important. Work up an appetite for seafood after seeing all the displays.
Step 6: Drive to Shaggy's Biloxi Beach for lunch. If a table is available, sit where you can watch the waves and the shoreline. Eat a dozen raw oysters and follow that with shrimp, mahi-mahi, or the catch of the day.
